Five years ago, I brought a 2008 Bize Corton Charlemagne to your “not La Paulee” dinner and Rob Pavlovich thought it needed another 5 years. I’ve been saving my last bottle and I’ll bring it again and see if he was right.

I’d like to be a part of this.

Still deciding what side of the table. My GC burgs are on the younger side (and mostly white). I’ll probably end up on the Napa cab side but we’ll see. Busy week!

Lieb Cellars and Shinn Estates are my favorites. I also think the Merlot from Macari is quite a nice wine (goes great with any pizza or pasta at Grana in Jamesport (and they have it on the menu too). Paumanok is gorgeous and a worthwhile trip - the wines are hit or miss but generally good+.
